Portraits from Destructon: Freight Yards


An unnamed homeless man of Destructon sends his thoughts:

Roxanne Clark, Louisville KY, 2008
acrylic paint and collage
4" x 6"


Au verso:
" Some find themselves running away from things ...others are running towards something ...know what I mean? I don't think there's anywhere to run ..."

His hopeless situation is closed with the expletive, "Got any CRPs*?"


*CRPs (Civilian Ration Packets): government controlled nutrient enriched food supplements that are obtained with a prescription from a certified nutritionist of Destructon.
